I am running Windows N, and it seems that YouTube Live and the -N flavor don't play well together (reddit, reddit, reddit (Doesn't apply to my PaleMoon) ). Regular YouTube videos play fine, I only have a problem with livestreams. It seems that Firefox (or Palemoon) requires Microsoft software to play HTML5 H.264 live streams. The whole reason I chose Windows N was so I didn't have to have Windows Media player et al. It seems that with Windows N, it's a de facto requirement to install the media pack (Windows 7, Windows 10), which just installs all the software that was regulated by the EU to not be bundled with the OS, thereby defeating the point of Windows N.
How can I get YouTube Live working in Windows N without installing the media pack (thus defeating the point of Windows N)?
- Windows 7 Ultimate N 64 bit
- Firefox 55.03 (32 bit)
- Palemoon 27.4.1 (64 bit)
This is the symptom:
This is what YouTube thinks the problem is (highlights mine):
I came across this extension and tried to install it in Palemoon, but it won't install in Palemoon.
